    We are 27 days away from our Disney Vacation! Yesterday, we received our Magic Bands. I was wondering if there is anything we have to do with them before our vacation. Do we have to activate them or something? Thanks for the help!

    Hello, Janice! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms panel.

    Once your magical package has arrived with your Magic Bands inside, there is nothing that needs to be done with them. They are all ready for your quickly approaching Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you so desire, you may customize your Magic Bands before your arrival. If you take a look online at sites such as Pinterest there are many creative DIY ideas using nail polish, stickers, temporary tattoos, and more to give your bands a personal touch. You can even purchase personalized stickers to adhere to your bands from sites such as Etsy. If you are anything like me, I like these little craft projects to distract me from counting down the days (hours) until it is time for my trip 'home'. Of course, none of this is mandatory.

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation, Janice!

Hi, I’m Rachel! I am a “boy mom” to two rowdy little men at home and married to my high school sweetheart. I am fortunate enough that my prince charming loves all things Disney just as much as I do! For me, planning a trip to Walt Disney World can be just as magical as being there. It brings our family together as we dream, plan, and count down the days. I would be honored to help plan your visit and share in your family’s very own magic! Learn More About Rachel
